Is there a way to search the names and contents of previously visited files?

That would be useful for when I half remember something and I know I saw it last week.

I don't know how you might implement this.

I guess you could create a separate database of recently opened files, and then run the searches inside that index?
Would there be a way to limit it to 1 month, 1 week, 3 days etc?

Does that make sense?

You can see the recently visited files from the history window; there is however currently no way to search this list.
